Please help me to understand The 50% rule!
9:26 AM, Sunday May 10th 2020
So in lesson 0 we learn that if we want to use Drawabox as it's intended we should follow 50% rule. To spend not less than half of our drawing time on drawing without aiming on the result (I will call it fisrt half here). And to spend not more than half of our drawing time on learning, improving and applying (I will call it second half here). Cool, but I'm confused.
My confusion lies in that I don't get what defines these halfs. Uncomfortable uses diffents word to describe the same half. Like with first half he associates things like fun, process-driven, fearless ("Draw the things you'd draw if you were the most skilled artist in the world"). But they don't (fully) overlap (at least I don't see them that way). I see these as different criteria. They produce different results when I try to place particular drawing activities in a specific half.
Making a finished piece. Some clear finished product. Full blown Illustaration, comic, etc. It might be for selling or gifting. It might be due to personal reasons.
There are definetely some projects that will feel fun and some that won't. It might be fun to produce it or fun to consume it afterward or BOTH.
Yet such activity is definetely result driven.
Such work can be within our comfort zone or we might fear doing it ("I'm not ready la la la").
Practicing at drawing some particular object or category of objects. Without any external study structure (courses, lessons, etc). Simply observing (or maybe not even observing) an object. Drawing it. And so learining how to draw it.
It might be enjoyable, it might not.
It might be done as a part of exploration process ot it might be done purely to improve, fast (result).
Depending on how rigorous such practice it might be within or out of one's comfort zone.
So what separates first and second halves?
Is it enjoyment? Whether we enjoy drawing it (having fun)?
Is it process/result focus? Whether we hope (wish) to make something good (pretty, meaningful, profound or however one defines "good result")?
Is it bravery? Whether we care about (fear) whether we are ready to draw it or not?
I hope I'm making sense here. Please help!
